Mara Wins Interface Excellence Award
Recognising our Sustained Partnership
Known as Project S3EED, the partnership aims to develop commercially viable tank-based seaweed cultivation. Mara Seaweed hopes to challenge other food producers with the concept that nutritious food can be economically produced.
The judges commended Mara Seaweed on their relationship with their partners. They noted their combined efforts to secure increasing amounts of funding, underlining their mutual commitment to the partnership.
It was also acknowledged that it is sound business strategy to be investing in the cultivation of seaweed in controlled conditions, and that this was the key innovation of this project.
New food resource
Fiona Houston, Mara "SeaEO," was delighted with the award. She said,
“I am pleased by the recognition and hope that our partnership can add value to Scotland's most natural, sustainable and 'new' food resource – seaweed.”
